Who's You Mummy- VIP Hop!!

Hey everyone, and welcome to this month's VIP Hop with My Favorite Things! Tonight's hop started at Kim's blog, so if you didn't get started there, better head on back!!

If you aren't familiar with the VIP package, it is a LIMITED QUANTITY product (NOT a one-day product - it will be available until it sells out), that allows you the opportunity to purchase the WTG set THREE WEEKS early.This month's package is:

Who's that Mummy stamp set
Mummy Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Rolled Mum Die-namics Die

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my Mummy on X-Press It Blending card, and then I colored her with my Copics. I then layered her with Orange Fizz, Sour Apple, and Black Licorice. I used MFT Black Felt to cut out my Rolled Mum Die-namics, and added a sparkly dot to the middle. My flourishes were cut out using the Fancy Flourish Die-namics, and I used the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics for my circles in the background. They were cut out of Echo Park Happy Halloween. I also used Michael's brads, a Creative Express Spiral Clip, and some ribbon and Charcoal Twine from MFT. For my sentiment, I used the Bracket Tab Die-namics.

For the inside, I used another sentiment from the set, some more paper, and another Fancy Flourish.

Well, that is it for me for now! Next stop: JACKIE'S BLOG!!

RCC16- Danielle's Sketch

Hey everyone, and welcome to this week's Ribbon Carousel Crew challenge. This week, Danielle is challenging us to use one of her “go to” sketches as this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC16).

And this week, we’re being joined by the Design Team of our sponsor, AMBER INK! AmberInk is giving one randomly selected participant a $15 Gift Certificate to their store!
AmberInk was started by a mother and daughter team. Amber lives in the East, Pam lives in the West. Amber is an Emmy nominated children's animator and illustrator, who creates from her Brooklyn, New York studio. Although they do carry some clear stamps, the company runs by the premise that their customers are more brilliant than patient. If you've been a diehard clear or rubberstamper, they can even help you with the transition to digital. And don't worry about asking a silly question, because as a retired public high school teacher, Pam has already seen it all. Check out the ever-increasing tutorial links, which you can find on the homepage. Hailing from the Hawaiian Islands, the Aloha Spirit is alive and well at AmberInk.com.

Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings, anything will work!

*** Please remember that your creation must include ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

For my card, I used the SUPER CUTE new Get Your Thong On set from There She Goes. I stamped my Thongs on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored them with my Copics. I then layered it with Orange Fizz, Wild Cherry, and Hot Fudge card stock(all from MFT). My paper is from the Basic Grey Life of the Party pack. I used Cherry and Brown Sugar Twine, Michael's brads, and an SU punch for my sentiment. For my tab up top, and flags, I used the MFT File Tab Die-namics, and First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.
Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to head to the RCC blog to see what the other girls have created for tonight's challenge!
